EMMC Case Study DOW

EMMC and DOW present the CASE STUDY

Modelling Drop Impact Test of Flexible Pouches Made of Thin Polyethylene Films

Interview of Hein Koelman, Dow
Writers: Alexandra Simperler and Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting)

The case is based on a market demand for novel and lightweight flexible food packaging replacing rigid forms of packaging, including rigid plastic, glass or metal. These “pouches” are indeed very lightweight and also do not take up much volume when disposed of. However, ….

EMMC Expert Meeting on Business Aspects of Digital Marketplaces

 

EMMC-CSA partner FRAUNHOFER is organising an expert meeting on business aspects of materials modelling marketplaces on May 6-7, at EPFL, Lausanne, CH.

Objective

The objective of the meeting is to bring together experts to exchange ideas and explore potential business models for sustainable operations of online European digital marketplace platforms. These platforms act as Digitalisation Innovation Hubs for next generation materials development and combine services for materials modelling, translation, education, software, data repositories and hardware (e.g., access to HPC backends).

More details is available on the event page.

EMMC workshop on Physics-based vs data-driven models

 

The EMMC workshop on “physics-based vs data-driven models”
was run inside the conference

“Multi-scale modelling (Coupling and linking) of materials and
molecules in the 21st century: Physics-based or data-driven?”

June 11-13, 2018 at the Ångström Laboratory of Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden

 

 

Report on the EMMC Workshop

thumbnail of EMMC-CSA-D1.6_M23_vfinal-PU-WEB

The conference had the purpose to bring together two scientific communities: the more traditional modelers using and developing physics-based methods and models and those applying and creating data-based informatics models now more and more rapidly entering into materials modelling. As they represent two different schools but still solving similar problems it created continuous debate on the pros and cons of both methods but also an agreement that they will both develop together and complement each other, especially, when more and more reliable data appear and become accessible to the community. The current status of data was a frequently touched topic; should all data be open to everybody or not? How should it be organized? Do we need ontologies? Also an open EMMC session was included to discuss this current report for the European Commission.

As far as we are aware, this was the first meeting of its kind anywhere, i.e. a meeting with exactly this focus. The interest from industry was significant with participation from DCS Computing, DSM (a Dutch multinational company in the fields of health, nutrition and materials), Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations SA (Luxembourg), Virtual Lab (Korea), Granta design (UK), Materials Design S.A.R.L (France), Solvay S.A. (big chemical company, France), Swerea KIMAB AB, Unilever Research, ACCESS e.V., Dow Benelux B.V., Noruna AB. Still on the non-academic side, the following industry-active institutes were represented: Teknova AS (Norway), Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), Helmholtz-Zentrum Geestacht and more. There were over a hundred participants from 16 countries. The audience was composed of junior and senior experts in academia and in industry as well as software developers and translators. Specialised presentations as well as expert-talks of a more tutorial character were included. Every scientific session ended with a summary of the highlights raised by speakers and audience collected by the chair-persons.

EMMC-CSA Workshop on Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives

 

The EMMC-CSA partner, POLITO is organising a Workshop on “Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives”

on July 8-10, 2019, at Sala Teatro, SiTI (Istituto Superiore sui Sistemi Territoriali), Turin, Italy


For detailed information on schedule, accommodation … please visit the event page!


Workshop objectives

The objective of this meeting is therefore to gather a consistent number of experts from the different stakeholders interested in materials adoption/development, and provide a discussion platform for industrial requirements as compared to state-of the-art modelling techniques. The ambition of the workshop is to cover the more relevant aspects which are critical to the widespread adoption of materials modelling techniques in industry. To this, six thematic sessions are organized and will cover:

  1. state-of-the-art modelling techniques and guidelines for further model developments;
  2. the perspective of the European software owners/developers;
  3. the economic impact of materials modelling on industrial innovation;
  4. strategies for improving the two-way transfer of knowledge between academia and industry – i.e. Translators and their training requirements;
  5. interoperability requirements and frameworks – e.g. ontologies – for integration of models and software. Finally, a special session will be dedicated to the discussion of the potential of artificial intelligence in the framework of materials modelling, with particular emphasis on the benefit for high-throughput simulations, big data and their mining – e.g. data-driven modelling – towards Industry 4.0.
